Move In & Move Out

Move in

We send out a series of welcome communications to our students prior to their move in date so that they will have plenty of time to prepare for the move. This consists of welcome emails, Facebook/Twitter updates and Welcome handbook, which offers comprehensive information about the move in day, the site and the community in great detail. The Welcome Handbook is also downloadable from the download section on the site specific landing page.

It’s always good to plan ahead, so we’ve put together a handy check list of stuff to take to Uni. Click here.

Is there somewhere to park when we are unpacking

 If you are travelling with your son/daughter on the move in day, we will inform you in advance whether there’s a drop off bay on site to you to off load any suitcases or belongings, or we will send you the location of the nearest car park. It’s important for your son/daughter to book their move in slot with us in advance so that we can make sure these resources are available to you on the day.

We understand moving out from family can be daunting! Don’t worry, we are always here to help.  We have teamed up with our friends at UniKitOut and are now pleased to offer a range of items including bedding packs, kitchen utensils and much more to be delivered to their room prior to their arrival.

What if we are arriving out of hours? What happens if we are not happy with the room

We understand that sometimes students will need to arrive outside of arrival hours. We ask for the student to contact their Accommodation team at the earliest possible opportunity to ensure that we can provide all the necessary information and ensure that we have got everything ready for their arrival. For example we need to ensure that we have received all relevant documentation, booking fee and first instalment before we can move anybody in. It might not be a manager who will be there for the check in however the accommodation team will always aim to introduce themselves at the earliest opportunity so your son/daughter knows who they are.
